Sometimes, men think it’s very difficult or expensive to keep a woman happy. While it may be true in some cases (we are all different!), most of the time, women appreciate little things. You don’t really have to spend a fortune to keep her happy, nor do you have to think of complicated gestures to show your love. Simple, little things are what keeps a woman happy in a relationship.

Of course, there are some big things you need to think about, too. Trust and respect, for example, are essential for a good relationship. If there is no love nor respect there’s no reason to build further. However, if you are in a loving relationship and would like to keep her happy, there are many sweet little things you can do.

Little Things

Contrary to the popular belief, it’s not difficult to make woman happy. It simply has to come from your honest feelings and respect. The problem is that men and women sometimes have different ideas on how to express their love and respect. Think of these little things as a way to show her your feelings in a way she can understand and feel appreciated.

Little things to try:

Compliment her. All men know about this, but not all know how to do it properly. The best way to compliment your woman is “just because” – to make her feel better about herself and to make her happy. Don’t compliment her just to gain something in return. Women know men often offer compliments as a way to gain a favor (be it of a sexual nature or not), and they know how to recognize when you’re not being honest. As for what to say: you know her better than we do and you know what makes her happy. You also know what you like and admire about her.

Thank her. Women tend to do a lot of little things to keep their men happy, and it’s important that you are aware of this. Do not take it for granted. When you see she’s doing something nice for you or that she’s investing her time and energy in you, show your appreciation and thank her. Do not assume it’s her “duty” to please you and do not take it for granted. Also, you may take it as a hint that she’d like you to do something similar for her.

Don’t shy away from romantic gestures. Many men dislike romantic gestures because they find them corny and emasculating. Some women, too, dislike typical romantic gestures like flowers or breakfast in bed. By all means, if your woman dislikes these things, do not do them. However, there is always something nice you can do to make her feel special. The trick is to make it all about her. This is what a romantic gesture is. It doesn’t have to be grandiose and it doesn’t have to be expensive. It just has to send a clear message that you’re thinking of her and doing this for her and her only.

Show your love in public. While the level of intimacy you display in public will depend on your individual preferences and comfort, you should never make your woman feel ignored while you’re outside. She wants to know you are comfortable to be with her and that you are not afraid to show this to the world. Do not pretend she’s just a person walking near you or that she’s just a random acquaintance. Make her feel you are proud to be with her and that you don’t mind expressing that in public.

Know how to apologize. Some men think it’s unmanly to say “I’m sorry”, but nothing can be further from the truth. If you know you’ve made a mistake, apologize. If you see she’s upset with you but you’re unsure why (it happens!), do not ignore it. Communication is the key. We all make mistakes and it’s respectable to admit it. It is yet another way to build trust between partners. Never be too stubborn to admit you’ve made a mistake and that you’re sorry.

Make her laugh. This is probably the best thing you can do for your woman. Life is full of hardships and problems, so she needs to relax from time to time. Be the one who will make her smile and remind her how enjoyable life can be. It will not only make her happy but will also make your relationship stronger.

These are just some of the things you can do to keep your woman happy. We are sure you can think of more – it all depends on your lady and what she likes! What are some of the best things to keep a woman happy? Share your thoughts below.
